About Hardship Hub

The Hardship Hub was established in 2019 with the support of United Utilities.


Initially, the Hub aimed to support the community of Not-for-Profit Money and Debt Advisors around the North West to find and share information that might help their clients.

We have since realised that as the economy and people’s circumstances have changed the information we’ve gathered could be used to help more people and we have now opened the website to the general public. 

We hope that the Hardship Hub will be a valuable resource for anyone looking to find information on hundreds of support services in one place. 

The Hardship Hub does not operate for profit or charge any fees and we continue to be grateful for the kind support of United Utilities without which we would not be able to maintain the website.
